"Although the late Chas. Dickens drew a not very flattering picture of Yarmouth, he accurately described the old portion of the town when he compared its formation to a vast gridiron, the Rows being the bars thereof, and the Jetty its handle. There are no less than 145 rows, all running east and west, and inhabited by thousands of the poorer classes. One of these being wider than the rest, is distinguished by the name of the Broad Row, and forms the subject of one of our photographs."

Letterpress from 'Photographs of Great Yarmouth'.
